This porridge recipe is a #HubSquad submission from one of our lovely members! It is a warming and spicy whole food-based meal. We suggested increasing the serving size of the oats and milk if you’re after a more filling breaky – this makes it more aligned to The Plate Model, with 1 serve carbohydrate and 1 serve protein. Adding some fruit such as fresh or frozen berries is a great way to get a serve of fruit whilst adding a bit of sweetness!. We’ve also added the nutritional content.
Porridge with Pistachio and Chia
- 1 cup oats, rolled
- 500 ml milk, any
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- ½ tsp cardamom seeds
- 20 g pistachios chopped
- Place all ingredients in a pan and bring it to the boil.
- Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally until the porridge is thick and creamy.
- Serve as is or top with fresh berries for a serving of fruit. We've topped ours with raspberry compote, which is raspberries, water and 1 tsp sugar simmered over the stove until it thickens.
